In this episode we discuss the recent BBC documentary series ‘Are our kids tough enough? Chinese school’ which is available on BBC iplayer at the moment here. The documentary aims to determine which education style, British or Chinese, is better and why. In the podcast we look at two important educational questions which arise:

  1. Is education style culturally bound?
  2. Are some education systems better than others and if so why?
